Copier & Optical Machinery Manufacturing in the US
In the five years to 2016, this diverse industry has experienced a moderate contraction, and revenue performance has varied by product segment. For example, sales for some industry products, such as photocopiers and other office machinery, have suffered due to a decades-long shift towards a paperless work environment. While overall industry revenue has suffered over the period, it is expected to increase marginally in the five years to 2021.
This industry mainly manufactures commercial cooking equipment, floor-cleaning machines (excluding residential vacuums), electronic teaching machines and automotive maintenance equipment (excluding hand tools). Operators also manufacture parts for service-industry equipment; optical instruments and lenses; copiers and office machinery (excluding printers); photographic equipment (excluding digital); automatic vending machines; and commercial laundry and dry-cleaning equipment.
